PRODUCT DESCRIPTION  
Beautiful RARE certificate from the New Alexandria Improvement Company issued in 1894. This historic document has an ornate border around it with the company's name on top center.

Just four years after the inauguration of the first successful trolley line in the world at Richmond in 1888, the Fairfax Herald announced with enthusiasm that "a syndicate of Westem capitalists ... has secured the right of way over the streets of Alexandria for an electric railway, ... embracing the principal streets of the city and running from the steamboat and railroad depots to Mt. Vernon, the whole scheme involving the expenditure of not less than a half million dollars." The New Alexandria Land and River Improvement Company also bought "1,600 acres of land in [Fairfax] county, across Hunting creek, south of Alexandria, between that city and Mt. Vernon. Within four months of the project's inception, the Washington, Alexandria, & Mt. Vernon Electric Railway was "practically completed," and residents of the Mount Vernon-Woodlawn neighborhood began to prepare for an immediate advance of progress.
